As charming and picturesque as so much within of Manhattan is, there’s something wonderful about seeing it from afar. The Brooklyn Heights Promenade, which runs above the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway alongside the East River is a perfect place to do just that. The view to the South end of the island is crystal clear and despite the sounds of traffic below, the busyness of the city muted. A famous spot to catch a relaxing hour on a bench, or stroll hand-in-hand with a special someone, the 1/3 mile long walkway welcomes visitors at all hours of the day. Twilight is an especially peaceful time to go—the air slighter cooler and the feeling of a general winding down all around. Lanterns light the path with lush trees and cozy Brooklyn Heights townhouses just beyond. A quick stroll takes no time at all, but in the end, you can’t help feel refreshed.
